Newcastle - Auckland Street stormwater works

We are undertaking stormwater rehabilitation work on Auckland Street Newcastle, between Hunter Street and King Street. Construction will start in May 2019 and be completed by mid-2019.
 
The work involves removal and replacement of the existing stormwater drainage in Auckland Street as well as some minor kerb and gutter and road resurfacing works.
 
What to expect during construction
 
Work hours will be Monday to Saturday during daylight hours. Notification will be provided to affected businesses and residents if work is required outside of these times.
 
Auckland Street will be closed to traffic from Hunter Street to King Street for the duration of the works with the exception of access for critical business requirements.
 
Pedestrian access will be maintained along both sides of Auckland Street for the duration of the works.
 
There will be some noise from machinery and increased truck movements in and around the work zone.
